I remember one time I had the time in editing some pictures I took by myself and I ended up having a reciprocated my picture to make it seems like I have a twin.
It's pretty obvious that it was an edited one. I didn't use much of the available tools for photo shop since I barely know anything about doing it, but lately I realized I wanted to learn more about editing graphics or pictures. If only I have time.
I have a friend who basically knows something about editing pictures and making fancy images out of the ordinary. She just learned through the photoshop free tutorials which she gladly found while browsing the net and after some time she started trying to do it by herself.
Next year, I'm set to learn for wandering the power of photo editing. I'm going to make my self worthy whenever I'm free from work.
(that was me and my fake twin..haha)
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!!
Last year, there were almost 450 reported cases of injuries and some were hit by strayed bullets. It’s good to welcome the coming year with complete set of fingers and be not physically hurt.
Let's be more careful and be safe as we welcome another prosperous New Year.
To my dear blogger friends and readers, thank you for the wonderful 2009 we've shared together through the world of blogging!.
We'll still be friends by heart as we welcome another exciting year.
Happy New Year to ALL!!

We spent our Christmas Eve and the whole day of Christmas in the hospital since my sister has not been recovered from Dengue and still being confined in Manila Medical Center. It was not until Saturday when she got discharged from the hospital and she finally went home. It was a really sad Christmas for me and for the whole family since that was the first time that our Christmas Holidays went into sudden tears of fears. Her platelets count was enormously changing. It was like 110 from the start and it went down to 80, then down by 70...went up to 91, and down by 84 counts.
I was told that the normal count should be around 150.And from the figures my sister has gotten into, it was really alarming. We were told that the doctors need to have constant monitoring of her blood test, because if her platelet counts moved down to 50, a blood transfusion more or less was needed. And that scared the hell out of me. I’m a broken window when it comes to medical stuff so whatever things I've heard from others about Dengue, made me feel much worried. All I knew was my sister is sick. On the night of Christmas Eve, we decided to bring our loving dogs outside the hospital for my sick sister would get to see them. You don't know how much our three dogs mean a lot to us, they are like a part of the family. Moving on, we asked the nurse in charged if we could possibly bring her down and perhaps she could possibly see our dogs outside waiting for her. The nurse said yes as long as she's still around the hospital premises. The thing was if she was only allowed to roam around the hospital, she wouldn't get a peek to our dogs outside. So what we did was, we asked the guard on duty, if she could stay beside the Emergency Room gate, and we were allowed but that wasn't too close to where my dogs were staying. After a long convincing with the guards, we smoothly wheel chaired my sis outside the hospital and went to the near blocks where my dogs at. She went into tears seeing our dogs and our little one seemed like they have been away from each other in like forever. We didn't have the traditional Noche Buena though, but the important thing was we're complete in welcoming Christmas. We stayed outside until 1 in the morning. On the 25th, mom and I went to Black Nazarene Church to attend mass and offer prayers for my sister, and we felt relieve. After a queue of waiting on the following day, the doctor said she could finally get discharged although she has not reached yet the normal level but with the entire test, he said my sister is going to be fine.
That was the moment I knew that it’s really our Almighty God who will save us from anything. And my faith was strong. I’m definitely a great believer of my faith.
Thanks everyone for the prayers and for all the care.:)
I really appreciate every single one of you..:) You know who you are.....

I hope my dear blogger friends and readers would pray for the fast recovery of my sis.
Still, I'm wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!!
Have fun and enjoy for at least you're all in your best shape.:)
At least comfy on our side though. Since she has a health insurance card, it's really a good thing that we don't need to shell out big amount of money not until she get out from the hospital and buy medicines for her self medication. It's really a relief when you're insured with regards to your health. Well, that's a friendly thought of getting sick. It crossed my mind that Health is really Wealth.

Thank God there were no client queries to interrupt us in the middle of entertainment. We were like kids again that night. We all played games competitively as if it would add a portion to our salaries as a reward. I didn't win though.
We also have varieties of food that we're perfect to everyone. There's pizza, spaghetti, sausages, sushi and a lot more.
There are only few days more till we say Hello to a Prosperous 2010.These holiday events are a lot of fun. We are all busy wrapping gifts, getting new clothes to wear, planning of reunions, renting a place for parties, and a lot more.
Unfortunately this holiday season can also end up costing us a lot if we aren’t careful.
Saving Money is good especially for the rainy days but it's really easier to be said than done. But there are a lot of ways on how we could help ourselves to save a little extra.
* Set Limit. - If we want to shop for something, consider having a limit on how much money we are willing to spend for a certain thing. Sometimes, we are just carried away with our unstoppable desires and we end up getting much more than what we really need.
* Selling our Old Stuff - Just look around the corner and we'll surely find something that still in good condition yet we don't need anymore. We could get money from selling it in a lesser price and use the money to buy something we need.
*Compare prices- Whenever we are in the groceries, shopping malls, or even doing online purchases, we all have the privileges to compare prices with the same products yet much cheaper from the other. But remember not to forget about the quality of products. And also keep in mind that not all expensive products are better than the cheaper one. Sometimes, it's just the brand.
*Don't take Magazines Voucher for granted. - We sometimes take for granted those friendly little coupon attached to magazine or other reading materials that would give us discounts in buying certain products. It’s time to watch out for coupons.
*Dress for Less - We all love to be fashionably attractive with the means of our attires. We tend to buy new clothes just for the sake of going to the flow. And we care less for the money we spend just to look good. But in order to save money, there are the means of Mix and Matches of Clothes.
We could re-use some accessories, clothes and even shoes for a different look. Just be creative in doing so. And you'll end up as if you're all brand new.
*Learn to say NO - With all the parties and gatherings around, we never say NO for it. There's nothing wrong in saying NO sometime especially if it would shed big amount of money. Yes, parties are good to mingle socially, but if it is done very often, our poor pockets will suffer too.
These are just some of the ways to SAVE money. Always remember, whatever we do today is what future will brings.

Well, my Saturday night was happily spent in the year end event Christmas Party of the company I'm working with. We had a blast and really enjoyed the night with the variety of foods catered by Via Mare and the ever prestigious raffles, I didn't win though, I ended up being one of those loser when it comes to raffles, never been so lucky with that ever since. But it still heart breaking to know that I missed to get the big time raffles, and so were my friends.
I'd like to emphasize what the big time raffles include?
2 Sony Home Theater with multisystem 32” LCD High Definition TV
4 Acer Aspire One mini-laptops
4 Panasonic 32” LCD High Definition TV
4 Nintendo Wii US version
6 Sony PlayStation Portable Slim 3000
6 Flip Video Cameras
100 pieces SM Gift Checks worth P500
Oh boy, these are pretty damn good! Who wouldn't want to take home one of these junks? I’m calling it junks now since I didn't get any of those..hahaha..( I sound frustrated and devastated now)
Well, just to forget about the junks, I made sure to enjoy the night with my friends.
We were all carried away to the dance floor and just let our frustrations slipped away for awhile.
And missed the weekend to drop an EC but will make up today. Thanks Guys for always visiting my page. And I’ll pay back all your visits. So let’s keep on doing our rounds. Have a Great Day ahead!!

You might be surprised loking for your names in my blog roll,and as you've noticed it's gone.I don't know how it happened. I don't even noticed it at first, i just thought there was an error with the page, but when I tried to refresh the page, it's really GONE!!!
After receiving a Christmas Hamper that really made me happy, I'm getting pissed off with this...Well, didn't see this coming!!!!
I'm making up!!I'd like to have my blog roll back!But can't do that easily.
You could help me by leaving messages in my chatbox and tell me your respective URL.This is really ridiculous!!!
Pls remind me about your page again so I could add it up on my list!!
Thanks a lot!!
**I'll try to add some of your page from the history setting of my pc.
Again, please remind of your URL if you don't happen to see it under my blog roll and that would be appreciated alot. Thanks again!
Christmas is a time of family, friends, colleague and sharing, and one of the best ways to show it is through giving Christmas Hampers. Few days are left for another year and 2009 has been interesting and wonderful times within the corporate world and nearly all of us have been effected by the economic upheaval. But there's no way to missed extending our gratitude to the people we've been with and work together as one. Now, more than ever employees and customers appreciate companies who acknowledge their staff efforts and customer support.
Finally, we’ve received early Christmas Hampers from the company.
We were as excited as everyone to see what kind of goodies were inside the bags.Almost everything you need to make pasta this Christmas eve were present, Toblerone Chocolates, Chip Ahoy cookies and many more. But did I mention that Swift Ham was included? Oh yes, there’s Ham and wouldn't like to bring home all of these?
It’s gonna be heavy to carry tough.
We never missed to have pictures taken with this early Christmas Hamper!

It was our dear friend birthday last December 7.So,we planned to give her something special.We actually intended to surprise her with a not so late birthday greetings from us written in a star design papers and of course with yummy gourmet cake. We’ve shared the chocolate gourmet cake that was equally sliced into 9 for lunch and we all had fun. We It was the first time I ever tried gourmet cake and for that reason I was such a big loser not until Kat's birthday. Gourmet cakes are really good. it was like eating ice cream and cake at the same time. I guess, it’s all because of its special frosting.
I'm certain that you don't want to be a big loser like me because you haven't tried this cake so you all have the means to try it by ordering it or doing your own cakes with simple gourmet cake recipes at the comfort of your home.

I love kids. Kids love chocolates. Therefore I love chocolates!
Well, that was really logical and may be considered truth. I actually like to spoil and splurge myself with chocolates especially after a long and tiring work.Every now and then, my family sees to it to have chocolates stored in our fridge. It’s actually good as dessert after every meal and at the same time we are enjoying having our favorites displayed on the fridge.
Last night, my sister brought home yummy chocolates that I absolutely can't resist.There were Toblerone mini’s, Hershey Kisses and Snickers which I freakin' love.I am really into milk chocolates but lately I've been craving for dark chocolates .I was told by a friend who is also a chocolate lover that dark chocolates are good for the heart. It has a lot of heart benefits by reducing our bad cholesterol up to 10 percent and for our blood pressure. And by researching, found out that plain dark chocolates are the healthiest of all without having too much of sugar intake and the so called saturated fat. Certainly, these dark chocolates are proven to be beneficial.
So, as for now, I’ll keep myself indulged with these dark chocolates but I need to make sure to keep on my budget since chocolates are not that cheap.
I'm thinking to make homemade dark chocolates for me since my mom knows a bit in doing it. I guess, it would be fun to do something you love.
You may go and visit their blogs as they have a lot of interesting post to read.

Half of my time is being divulged in front of the computer due to the nature of my work. When I get home, I still can't avoid myself to stay away from the computer since there's nothing more to do at home. Although, our internet is down at the moment, but I still tend to keep busy playing some stored and downloaded games in the computer. With that, I started to feel something uncomfortable with my eyes. I noticed that I usually get head ache during night time, and I assume that it's because of facing the computer all the time that triggers to eye muscle fatigue. I recently talked to my mom about it and she suggested to get reading eye glasses for eyes protection. I was hesitant to that since I have never tried wearing eye glasses before even just for the fact that it's only for a time when I have to face the computer again. But knowing that it would help me and for my clear vision not to suffer, I'm now considering to get one though. While surfing the net, I found this stylish eye glasses that would surely make me convince to get one and finally get my eyes protected. I am definitely taking a step to completely maintain my 20/20 vision. You could also check here if you want to get your own.

I had fun taking pictures of my super hyperactive dog turned to be sleepyhead named Chino. He’s a combination of Labrador and Japanese spitz but he mostly inherited the Labrador side. He usually plays around the house and get something to destroy and play with, say for an instance, our front door mat. But currently, he’s not on the mood to do it as he was not feeling well and I'm not used to see him that way. We didn't know if he had taken something that was not really edible at all. Or maybe just like us, there's a time that we don't feel good with maybe because of the weather. Just for our confusion to get settled, we have finally decided to consult a friendly vet about how is he doing right now. So we're actually on the look for veterinary clinics around the area for us to make sure if our beloved dog is just fine. That made me realized how helpful for the residents of USA and Canada is the vet locator where they could easily look for veterinary clinics or vet nearest to their area without having to consume a lot of time and effort in finding one for their pets in case of situation where they need to seek one. That’s really convenient and helpful on their end.

Early this morning, I was wrapping give away gifts courtesy of my mother for her friendly clients. I offered my not so talented hands to do it since my shift for work was not as early as 12pm.I figured if I have a creative wrapping ideas to show off.While doing it, I felt pressured on getting my own give away gifts for friends. I’ll find time on weekend though. My mom picked these little colorful handbags from Secosana. When you try to open it, it’s really not little at all. It could either be a handbag or shoulder bag at once. I haven't finished wrapping it all, just done with the first 10, there are 20 more to go, but probably I'll get it done later tonight.
I just hope mom would not let me wrap my own gift from her..lol.If she plans on giving me one because usually I get to asked it straight from her whenever we're out for little shopping...
till next time,
